Quest Squad Member Highlight - Lola K

For our next “Meet the #QuestSquad” member highlight, a blog series where we share how Quest helps fuel Quest Squad members on their journeys, meet Lola K!

Lola Ks Quest Story

Lola K’s first Quest encounter happened when she was looking for alternative snack options during a road trip. On a quest to find BBQ chips, she went to a nearby supplement store and compared the different brands and their ingredients. “As I compared nutrition labels on each bag, it became very clear which one I was getting: the Quest BBQ Protein Chips!” She explained that she has a severe allergy to synthetic dyes and was glad to see that Quest did not have any listed. “Long story short, I walked out of that store with two entire boxes of 12.”

Lola K shared that Quest helps her stay on track with her macros when she is craving a treat. “I prepare my meals weekly to ensure I stay within my macros allowance. I also have a sweet tooth and have to be smarter with the snacks that I have on top of my meals. Quest products help me satisfy my cravings while sticking within my macros.”

Today, she stocks up on Cheddar Cheese Crackers, Coconutty Caramel Candy Bites and her personal favorite? The Salted Caramel Protein Shake. “Listen, I love sharing food but I would go to war if anyone dares touch my Salted Caramel Protein Shake. That’s my precious!”

Speaking of fave Quest snacks, Lola K shared that it’s one of her favorite discussions with other Quest Squad members that she encountered at the gym she frequents. “We would talk about our love for the Quest products, and share ideas about the monthly Quest Squad challenges. We would even compare our Quest stocks! It was always funny how both our stocks looked like stores with all those Quest goodies,” explained Lola K. “It’s serious stuff!”

Lola K’s story for joining Quest Squad was not out of the ordinary - she simply stumbled upon our emails about the Quest Squad community and signed up in 2019. However, she shared a heartfelt moment and why she has fond Quest Squad memories. After joining Quest Squad, she was unfortunately laid off. In between job searching, she participated in the monthly Quest Squad challenges and received monthly products for sampling. She shared, “I was grateful because thanks to those bars, and cookies, and chips, I was not going to bed on an empty stomach anymore. I was at my lowest point in life, and not many were by my side. The Quest Squad did more than I ever could imagine for me, and I am very grateful.”

We asked about her favorite workout and she said bodybuilding. “It’s challenging both physically and mentally, but it teaches you resilience, fortitude, discipline, compassion, flexibility, self-confidence, and last but not least, deep understanding of yourself.” She doesn’t compete, but she enjoys it for the challenges, teachings and most importantly, long-term overall health.

Lola K’s Tips on Motivation

When we asked her what helps her stay motivated, she shared a robust list: 

  • Set S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timely) goals;
  • Break down the bigger tasks into smaller ones;  
  • Find your “why”. Why are you doing what you are doing? 
  • Find an activity that you enjoy and do it for the love of the activity;
  • Track your progresses and remember where you started and where you are now;
  • Be kind to yourself and listen to your body. Pace yourself.

She shared that she has a note in her bathroom mirror that says “Remember your WHY” – it’s what she tries to remember when she’s feeling frustrated or wants to give up.
